Did you notice all of the wonderful Blackberry and Lemon recipes floating around the blogisphere last week? I did, and I felt a bit left out. They all looked so delicious! So, I created my own Lemon Belgian Waffles with Blackberry Syrup for dinner the other night.Light and fluffy Lemon Waffles with Blackberry Syrup are a delicious breakfast treat cookingwithcurls.com

These Lemon Waffles are so light and fluffy and the Blackberry Syrup was the perfect touch! I have never been a huge fan of maple syrup, so this was an extra special treat! The kids both loved them, which is even better, right?

How to make Lemon Belgian Waffles with Blackberry Syrup:

To make the waffles:

In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a separate bowl, mix together egg yolks, sugar, butter, lemon zest, and milk.

Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and mix to combine.

In a third bowl, beat the egg white until stiff peaks form.

Add the whipped egg white to the mixture.

Gently fold the mixture together to combine. You do not want to deflate the egg whites, you just want them mixed in.

Scoop mixture in to waffle maker and cook per manufacturer’s instructions until golden brown.

Remove waffles to a cooling rack and continue cooking additional waffles. You can also place cooked waffles in a 200 degree oven to keep warm.

To make the Blackberry Syrup:

Place blackberries in a a small sauce pan.

Add the sugar, lemon zest and water.

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat and mash berries with a potato masher or the back of a wooden spoon.

Pour mixture into a bowl through a fine mesh strainer and push pulp through with a spoon. Allow mixture to sit and continue to drain into the bowl for 30 – 60 minutes.

Serve immediately, or store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

I liked the syrup just the way it was, which you can see is on the thin side. Cassi (the princess) thought it should be thicker, so next time I might try adding some cornstarch or pectin to thicken it up a bit…or not. 😉
